Tips specific to an interactive thesis

Writing about the design of a highly interactive system does present some challenges, but for the most part you can follow the same strategies advocated for any other type of thesis. You will need to think quite hard about how to create a concise set of diagrams/images that captures the interactive nature of the system.

Here is my main tip:

Even if you have created a mammoth interactive system with huge amounts of imagery, sound, etc., your thesis is still about the properties of this system that make it better/different than other options. You will need to use examples from your system to make these points. You don't need to capture everything the system does in the main part of the thesis document.
